PPDS Announces X-Line UHD Video Wall Range
PPDS, the exclusive global provider of Philips digital signage, LED, and pro TV products and software announced the availability of the Philips X-Line UHD video wall range in North America.
Announced at InfoComm 21 in Orlando, Florida, (booth 3421), the 49” and 55” Philips X-Line video wall range has been designed for 24/7 use and provides optimum performance in almost any indoor environment, automatically adjusting to changing lighting conditions, whether in natural indoor lighting or the full strength of natural sunlight.
With Direct LED Backlight technology and running on the latest software, Philips X-Line’s high-resolution setup and Pure Colour Pro technology for superior depths of black and high-brightness color levels, ensures even the most detailed or complex content can be viewed with the crispest clarity, while its Smart Insert technology and dedicated handles make installation and maintenance effortless. With PPDS’ FailOver technology, displays will always remain active, switching automatically between primary and secondary inputs, ensuring that content keeps playing even if the primary source goes down.
X-Line video walls offer visual performance, with a 3.5-millimeter bezel providing connectivity between panels, and the FHD (1920x1080p) resolution, offering native UHD on a 2×2 video wall, to command attention, with 500cd/m2 brightness.
These video wall panels feature optional “light sensors,” which, when combined with PPDS’ exclusive Pure Colour Pro technology, deliver higher luminance through custom color temperature settings. The displays will automatically adjust to maintain high image quality, precise white balance and accurate color consistency.
The displays can also come equipped with optional “Human Motion” sensors, which turn display power up and down, depending on room activity.
“Natural light is a common enemy of any display,” added Wyrwitzke. “Yes, you can adjust the settings throughout the day as the sun goes up and down, or when it’s particularly cloudy and gloomy but at PPDS we’d rather you just concentrate on what you do best and let our displays take care of the conditions, whether it’s natural or indoor light.”
Consistent with other displays in the PPDS product portfolio, the X-Line videowall range comes equipped with vast levels of remote management controls, harnessing widely used standards for corporate environments, including PPDS’ exclusive and most up to date CMND platform.
Users are able to perform vital functions, whether on one or multiple displays, including controlling inputs and monitoring display status, resolving problems as and when they arise or performing important updates entirely remotely. Its drag-and-drop interface makes it simple to publish any content.
Philips X-Line customers can also enjoy the processing power of Android, with an optional CRD50 module, which can be inserted into one of the OPS slots, containing all the connections needed — including power supply — and removing the need to add an Android module for each display.
